Image:Metrocop old skin.jpg[edit]

Could you read what I put there: Image talk:Metrocop old skin.jpg Thanks! Klow 15:55, 21 February 2009 (UTC)

I changed it. I think that's better. Klow 13:24, 15 April 2009 (UTC)

HL SDK models[edit]

Hey where do your compiled HL SDK models come from? Mine have slight differences. Maybe you compiled them yourself? Klow 13:23, February 19, 2010 (UTC)

I don't compiled gauss gun due to no animations for old gauss and polygons errors. It's screenshot from MilkShape3D. SiPlus 15:10, February 19, 2010 (UTC)
Ok, you took a screen through MilkShape3D, but who compiled it? They are not compiled in the SDK. Klow 22:33, February 19, 2010 (UTC)
I didn't compiled model. I loaded source (.SMD file). Origin is fake because there is no "go to coordinates" in MS3D. SiPlus 11:48, February 20, 2010 (UTC)
Ah. I didn't know that program anyway. BTW I replaced the pics by better versions that fit the early screenshots. Klow 12:52, February 20, 2010 (UTC)
Ok. MilkShape 3D is modelling program, like 3DS Max but the way easier. SiPlus 12:54, February 20, 2010 (UTC)
Yeah, I tested it a bit. Thanks. Klow 12:57, February 20, 2010 (UTC)


So you are using a bot here without telling anyone? Do you think this is how it's done? Why didn't you ask me or another admin "Hey I created/have a bot, what do you need it to do to help"? No, you just make it go rampant like you were the only master. You never use a bot on a wiki without telling the admins, especially when it changes stuff it shouldn't change, and you never do huge edits alone, especially when nobody appoints you. The wiki was here before you, and that's not how we work. It's sad to spoil our trust in you, because what it did was mostly helpful - but that's not the issue. We can always you a bot, but you have to refer to us first. Klow 22:01, February 21, 2010 (UTC)

It's not fully automated bot. It's program that won't work without me. The program that I use (AutoWikiBrowser) was made to edit pages manually, but without web browser and clicking "Edit". I used it to fix User:Klow/Links to replace. Screenshot of program: here. Also check out Wikipedia article (wikipedia:Wikipedia:AutoWikiBrowser) about it. SiPlus 06:49, February 22, 2010 (UTC) UPDATE: Everything from User:Klow/Links to replace except HECU Sentry Turret fixed.
Let me just lay it out for you, a bot is a bot. That is a bot program. You did not have ANY permission to use a bot. Not from Wikia and for sure not from us. If you don't know, it is at a minimum common courtesy to let the admins know when you set up a bot. They are a big deal most of the time if not entirely all of the time. Why would we get so upset? According to a lengthy conversation I had with Klow, some of the edits it was making were completely wrong and for plenty of others it was also doing many other things to articles we did not want done, such as removing links in titles. This is a big problem. As the admin team it is our job to keep the wiki running. Especially when it comes to bot programs. If you really read what Klow wrote here, you would see we want you to STOP USING IT until we at least were able to get the situation settled and tell you the problems we had with it. You are banned for at least the day so we can sort this out.--YabbaMyIcingTalk 07:52, February 22, 2010 (UTC)
It's not bot. It's external editor. It's alternative for "Edit this page" button. Bot is fully automated program. External editors are not bots. If you're using e-mail client instead of browsing e-mail through web browser, are you using bots? SiPlus 07:58, February 22, 2010 (UTC)
Ok fine, it's not a bot. I tested AWB and that's a fine tool, but when you are kindly told to stop, just stop until the dispute/misunderstanding is solved. That's what mature people do. Klow 10:02, February 22, 2010 (UTC)
And anyway, as seen here, you're not even supposed to be here or on the Internet in general: "While you may use this Service without registering for membership, membership in the Service is void where prohibited by law, and is intended solely for users who are thirteen (13) years of age or older. Any registration by anyone under 13 is unauthorized, unlicensed and in violation of these Terms of Use. By registering the Service or the Site, you represent and warrant that you are 13 or older and that you agree to and to abide by all of the terms and conditions of this Agreement." Klow 10:39, February 22, 2010 (UTC)
There are no technical age limits. So, I don't care about it. SiPlus 11:09, February 22, 2010 (UTC)
So, after some discussion we decided that you are not allowed to use AWB anymore. Thanks for fixing the redirects, but we prefer to handle that now, to, among other things, avoid the replacements that shouldn't have been done. We know have an official account for AWB, User:DØG, and it has been approved by Wikia, which is vital for using AWB. So don't use AWB anymore, or you'll be banned. Thanks for your understanding, and bear in mind this is not personal. Klow 00:11, February 23, 2010 (UTC)

Sector C screenshots[edit]

Hey this is not really what I asked you when you submitted your help. I asked you to caption the images themselves, not in the articles. Maybe you misunderstood me... Because of that I won't really gain much time... Klow 15:58, April 12, 2010 (UTC)


Do you know how to have the bot add content to a page? I'd like to add the template "talk" at the top of all the main namespace talk pages, but I can't find a way to do it. It seems that "Append/Prepend text" is close to what I'm looking for, but nothing happens. Any suggestions?... Klow 10:08, May 17, 2010 (UTC)

AutoWikiBrowser is not bot. It's page editor that edits one page per action. Contact Wikia staff or write your own application. SiPlus 10:35, May 17, 2010 (UTC)
Very helpful and nice, thanks! I just thought you knew the program. Klow 17:35, May 17, 2010 (UTC)
Yeah, the first sentence was ironic. Klow 15:22, May 18, 2010 (UTC)

Achievement template[edit]

I'm not sure if I entirely like the idea of having achievements listed on every article. Maybe it's because I see them as somewhat stupid. Still, it seems to be quite neat, and does't take up too much room. Bramblepath 10:37, February 12, 2011 (UTC)

I made a few changes to the template... make sure you don't keep adding the old code... Bramblepath 10:41, February 12, 2011 (UTC)


Hey, I know you... Yeah.. the guy on the CS Wiki. Hey listen, about the unused images, sorry about it, I just needed it for the first page here in the Combine Overwiki, and one other thing, you still play Counter-Strike, It's me, CS Specialist in the CS Wiki

CS Specialist 12:32, February 28, 2011 (UTC)

Hey, bastard, it's not vandalism, it's just not wanting you to give us false information. We don't know what the hell that purple thing is.

Co-op robots and portal gun images[edit]

A friend of mine uploaded an image to the Atlas and P-body article and the portal gun article.

Apperantly both images had to be deleted for unjustified reasons.

Comparing the image of the portal gun now on the article and the one that my friend wanted on it, I would say my friend's image was much better than the one here, being that This [1] is much more higher quality than the original portal device.

The Atlas and P-body image, though higher resolution, doesn't have as good quality as the one my friend had since I can see more of a reflection on atlas's "top plate" than in the one that is in the article now. [2]

I request that both these images, if not replace the main images on the articles at least have a place there, as these are of better quality.

Thank you for your time.

RE: Image policy violation[edit]

Done. JoePlay (talk) 16:27, April 14, 2011 (UTC)

Management templates[edit]

I've noticed that the management templates cause wrapping issues when used on pages (Gordon Freeman, Eli Vance, etc.). This could be fixed by changing the class="article-template" to class="mbox" in the code (see User:The Rogue Penguin/Test for an example with Freeman's intro). Unfortunately, I haven't figured out how to get the box to align to the left with such a format, but it would at least look a lot nicer without the opening quote and paragraph being squashed between the message boxes and the top of the infobox. — Trust not the Penguin (T | C) 17:44, April 14, 2011 (UTC)

Should have been clearer, my mistake. It works for the default skin because the bar fills the entire top screen. On the MonoBook, you get the wrapping error. Functionally, there'd be no difference on the default skin, but it would correct the problem on the other one. — Trust not the Penguin (T | C) 18:00, April 14, 2011 (UTC)
Thanks. — Trust not the Penguin (T | C) 18:06, April 14, 2011 (UTC)
One last thing: Template:Talk still has a pixel value for the width of the main text (once past the image and again in the ending div). Ends up pushing the box text to the right side of the page. — Trust not the Penguin (T | C) 00:20, April 15, 2011 (UTC)

Vandalising Spree on Wikis[edit]

Hi I originally posted this on Bramblepath's talk page but it seems he's hasn't been here in a while. So I am not sure if anyone has warned this wikia yet, so I just wanted to turn your attention to this [[3]] and make sure this wiki will be prepared if this vandal turns his attention here. It will help if you can also give the heads up to the Team Fortress and Left 4 Dead wikis too. Thanks. --Occam's Razor 10:13, April 30, 2011 (UTC)


Hey can you help me fix the issue at final bracket here? Right after "src". I know you can do it! ;) Cheers. Klow 07:43, May 10, 2011 (UTC)

Old gun[edit]

Shouldn't we have an article on that weapon, whatever that is? Is it a completely different weapon, or an early version of the Tau Cannon?... Klow 23:20, May 10, 2011 (UTC)

Hey, I'm experimenting code tweaks in the gallery tag, so please don't alter them. (if you don't like it, bear in mind this is not final) You should've seen Dog made this!... Cheers Klow 21:53, May 14, 2011 (UTC)

Vandalism Warning[edit]

An IP made an edit they quickly undid here. Considering it is an IP and as said was undone by it, we can't give a ban. It might have been a little brother and then a more mature person undoing the stupidity. But you should drop a warning for such irresponsibility. ~ɠą§ɔîéɳčę { talk } 05:57, June 2, 2011 (UTC)


I haven't talked to you in are you? Omnicube1 01:17, June 10, 2011 (UTC)

I'm good so you're an admin here! Nice work Omnicube1 22:57, June 11, 2011 (UTC)


I'm a bit new to this wiki. still unsure where the rules are actually. The only other wiki I've edited has been the R-type wiki. and that has little rules other than the standard anti-vandalism ones x.x user:bydolord 16:44, June 10, 2011 (UTC)

Redirection Cube[edit]

That's the official name for it. Pivot cube is only mentioned as game files and code, and the term "Pivot" has never been mentioned in-game. It only came from various pre-release info, which would be heavily outdated compared to "Discouragement Redirection Cube". McFlurryMax 22:23, June 13, 2011 (UTC)

But the diagrams aren't even in the game. The diagrams are outdated and pre-release info. And most of the Hammer stuff seems to call it a "Reflective" cube instead of "Pivot". I say Discouragement Redirection should be it's official name. That's what GLaDOS calls it, and Pivot has never been mentioned in the game, let alone by commentary. McFlurryMax 05:51, June 14, 2011 (UTC)

And there was no mentioning of it in the game itself though. It's been called a Discouragement Redirection Cube by GLaDOS, and I think that sounds more like an official name, similar to how Aperture named the "storage balls" as Edgeless Safety Cubes. McFlurryMax 10:52, June 14, 2011 (UTC)

A word of advice[edit]

Please stop airing your dirty laundry in public. As I told you before, you don't solve your issues publicly, you do it privately, and with temper. Everything you say can be used against you and the wiki, and thus against me. If we have things to say to the Portal wiki guys, we won't do it on YouTube. So please stop making us look like retards. What Barnz told me is good enough. Klow 17:45, June 14, 2011 (UTC)

Half-Life: Decay storyline[edit]

I have finished adding images to the Half-Life: Decay storyline page, I hope my input was helpful, thank you for showing me already uploaded screenshots of the game it helped quite a lot.

PS can I remove the "This article would greatly benefit from the addition of one or more new images." banner Adapool 07:28, June 19, 2011 (UTC)

I have finished editing the Half-Life: Decay storyline page, I have read through the article and changed a few things, I also added Chapter numbers to each section, which I asked Klow about on his Talk page. do I have permission to remove the underconstruction and Cleanup banners from this page? Adapool 08:49, June 20, 2011 (UTC)
Thanks, I thought that I might be able to remove the underconstruction banner, but I didnt think I would be able to remove the other one, because it warns that anyone removing it without permission would be banned. Do you think it would be a good idea to add chapter numbers in the storyline articles, I quite like it but that doesnt make it a good idea, it really has to be added to all storyline articles or none. Adapool 09:08, June 20, 2011 (UTC)
I asked klow about adding chapters, he said this. I understand that you don't like the idea, I'm planning to add it to the Half-Life original game storylines first, If it works, keep it, If not, It can be removed at anytime. Adapool 09:29, June 20, 2011 (UTC)

Original source[edit]

I see you edit in Sector C and Sector D linking to: this page i´m going to change to this page that is the main source. TuningBEB2008 03:08, June 26, 2011 (UTC)

Why did you change the pic I had posted for Realm Lovejoy's profile picture? Did I post it incorrectly?

Aperture Science Core Input Receptacle[edit]

You reverted the move to Aperture Science Core Input Receptacle by Bramblepath without explanation, and created redlinks in the process. Boo. Klow 23:20, June 26, 2011 (UTC)


Hey kiddo, we (the other admins) didn't grant this. We are not the Portal Wiki. Reverted, sorry! Klow 20:42, June 30, 2011 (UTC)

Why did you delete my page[edit]

hey why did you delete that page i have a mod - Motherfat

Testing track[edit]

Please, PLEASE, for the umpteenth time, update the related nav templates when you rename a page! Klow 11:17, August 10, 2011 (UTC)


I was under the impression that the newest source of information pertaining to a subject was considered canon over an older, conflicting source.

Why, then, is older information retained instead of newer information? For instance, several aspects of the history of Aperture Science are purposely not updated for Portal 2. Is this a mistake in my way of thinking, or is there a particular reason for this?

Portal 2 Era[edit]

I noticed your recent edit on the timeline of the Half-Life universe, and I seriously doubt that Portal 2 takes 52,000 years after the first game. Is this date based on some other factor, or just the computer's malfunction at the start of Portal 2? I don't think we should make an absolute conclusion on when the game takes place, for we simply do not know. There are several possibilities.

If the "52,000+" date has been confirmed, disregard what I've just said. CSFilms 13:19, August 19, 2011 (UTC)CSFilms

Escape from City 17 to be considered canon?[edit]

Given that it does not contradict the official games but only complement it, I suggest that it should be considered a canonical source. Even if fan-made, the article states that Valve helped promote the movie and posted the news on the Steam page; this can definitely be seen as endorsement.


Its story is non-canon, promotion doesn't mean that canonicity of the story was confirmed by Valve story writers. SiPlus 08:11, August 26, 2011 (UTC)
But Valve, according to this wiki's own canon guidelines, does not really care about canonicity to begin with, so that is not really relevant. If I understood correctly, the guidelines for accepting something as canonical are chiefly based on whether or not the proposed work contradicts the preexisting canon or not, as well as whether Valve approves of it.
I should also add that pre-release HL2 (the leak, E3 demos and concepts, etc) is non-canon as well, because Valve deliberately chose to remove or rearrange many parts of the story and locations. Yet a lot of articles here mention it, at least in Trivia/Behind the Scenes/Cut Content sections, even when it openly contradicts the canon. -Pa3PyX
Fan-made content is NOT canon until it is stated by Valve that it's canon. HL2 Beta is non-canon, but it's considered as cut content here, so, it's there. SiPlus 11:54, August 27, 2011 (UTC)
I mean, if Valve couldn't care less about their own content being canonical (and are not ashamed to retcon their own games in inconsistent ways, e.g. the end of HL2 and the beginning of HL2:EP1), we should not expect them to ever declare any third-party content canonical either. Laidlaw ain't Lucas, and it is mentioned here that even (semi)official Gearbox expansions have never been confirmed by Laidlaw to be canonical, nor enforced to conform to Valve's vision of the universe. If that content is nonetheless considered canonical (except for the parts which contradict Valve's games), so should other third-party content which gained the approval of Valve, whether fan-made or franchise-made.
Many parts of pre-release HL2 aren't really cut content, but rather altered content, i.e. changed (often in incompatible ways) rather than simply omitted. I'm not arguing that pre-release HL2 content should be removed; rather, that if this material has the right to exist in the wiki, it is unclear to me why other non-canon material does not (even if explicitly mentioned to be non-canon/unconfirmed/behind-the-scenes/out-of-universe).

Recently, most new users/admins on the CoD wiki are fans of the MLP, and they are fucking sensitive if you insult them. I hate MLP, but I never show on the CoD wiki because I can be accused of trolling which is retarded. RC 03:35, December 7, 2011 (UTC)

Wikia problem[edit]

Why are Wikia so obsessed with having the history of this wiki shared with the Wikia one? FokkerTISM 19:08, 6 January 2012 (MSK)

IDK really. SiPlus 13:27, 7 January 2012 (MSK)

And another thing[edit]

Pages with text in #contentSub, article template is moved upwards, which looks ugly. It's awkward to get it to adjust properly for both pages without that and pages with it. Any ideas? Bramblepath 15:37, 7 January 2012 (MSK)

Deleting users[edit]

Can you please not delete users? Blocking them is sufficient. Bramblepath 16:57, 10 January 2012 (UTC)

Your time here is over[edit]

This is the second time this is happening. You're not in position to remove my files. I've had enough with you, and your edit wars. I'll talk with others, and have you demoted.--Barnz 13:22, 7 February 2012 (UTC)

Canon. Please note that games series from Valve such as the Counter-Strike, Team Fortress, Day of Defeat or Left 4 Dead series are obviously non-canon, being not set in the Half-Life and Portal universe. SiPlus 16:32, 7 February 2012 (UTC)

But the very same page features a Deathmatch Classic section for the medkit. That's just as non-canon, if not more, than Team Fortress content. -Vic 18:36, 7 February 2012 (UTC)

I would say that since TFC is a mod for HL, then some of the content from it can be used here for reference. If we're going to have a section for Deathmatch Classic then I guess TFC also counts. But Barnz, don't link to the page since we aren't going to have a page for it, or link to the page on TF wiki. Bramblepath 08:48, 8 February 2012 (UTC)

Main Page logos (blue)[edit]

Hey, I recently added the PayPal logo on the main page, but as you can see all the blue logos touch each other (that's what she said), and I'd like them to have let's say 2px around each other. You see what I mean? Just some space. I can't do it, I know you do! Klow 23:53, 21 January 2013 (GMT)

Good, but there's still no space left of the Twitter and PayPal logos... Klow 13:00, 25 January 2013 (GMT)
Kudos! Klow 16:15, 26 January 2013 (GMT)

Embedding Special:NewPages[edit]

I'd like to embed Special:NewPages in the Main page, in a table saying "Latest articles". {{Special:NewPages}} shows all of it. What can be found here doesn't show how to display the titles only, it shows everything (for instance like this: {{Special:Newpages/limit=3,offset=3}}) - the parameter "shownav" shows the nav options, so I guess most fields have a particular parameter, but there's not much here. I found something interesting here, but I guess we need to install something: {{#tag:rss|{{fullurl:Special:NewPages|feed=rss}}&namespace=0{{!}}short{{!}}max=8}} Klow 14:01, 4 February 2013 (GMT)

Ok thanks. I set up something with OverWiki:Content Updates, that'll do for now. Manually adding relevant updates is actually better than just displaying the Recent changes. It can be improved, of course. Klow 08:35, 5 February 2013 (GMT)

'Themes' page[edit]

What was the problem with my 'themes' page? I didn't see any other page on the subject. ThePerson5 12:37, 12 February 2013 (GMT)

I was looking to list all of the themes in one article for easy access. Where else has it been covered, out of curiosity? ThePerson5 15:17, 12 February 2013 (GMT)

Fair enough. ThePerson5 18:03, 12 February 2013 (GMT)

Even still, though, do you not think it would be useful to have at least one page that discusses the 'philosophy' and 'message' of Half-Life's storyline, or its use of symbolism and whatnot? Basically, discussing its use of literary devices and its themes? These kind of discussions are not necessarily completely subjective, or based only on the author's 'view,' as you said. Just wondering. ThePerson5 19:35, 12 February 2013 (GMT)

Well since you are an administrator I will not continue this argument, as it's your decision, but I'd just like to point out that there are many similar articles on other wikies, such as Wikipedia. I think it would be a useful article, but if you disagree then I'll drop it. ThePerson5 20:23, 12 February 2013 (GMT)

Sure, I send Klow a message. ThePerson5 22:58, 12 February 2013 (GMT)

Clean Up template in former wiki?[edit]

Hi, SiPlus, i think that you was a admin in Old Half-Life wiki. But i want to know but would the users still get blocked from removing Clean up template in the old wiki? That template seem to be useless since you and Klow leave from there.--Gumball Watterson (reply) 18:24, 21 November 2013 (GMT)

Overwatch Voice Quotes sounds[edit]

Why would you remove the Overwatch Voice/Quotes sounds? SleepyMode (talk) 20:26, 15 June 2017 (MSK)

Why did you delete sound files[edit]

Expanding on the comment above, you deleted countless sound files and removed them from quote pages using your bot User:Jerry, with no explanation but "remove sounds", and have reverted anyone who tries to re-add them, also without explanation. Is there some admin decision nobody seems to be aware of? Rjd1922 (talk) 06:49, 1 October 2017 (MSK)

The audio files for the quotes were removed from the wiki because they were creating an excessive demand overload on the server, rendering the whole wiki unusable. The wiki software isn't designed to handle such a large number of audio files, so a much different hosting solution, likely completely external, is necessary here.
